When Half Life 2 comes out, EA is gonna really have to struggle to keep up. HL2's engine is just....superior, for lack of better words. It's just that damn good. The maps will be much bigger than EA's. The physics will be 100x better. And most importantly, the mods coming out for it will kick the shit out of Battlefield 1942. There's already a Band of Brothers mod in progress. No doubt there'll be a Vietnam mod, a new CS mod. With Half Life 2's release EA will completely be screwed. Who will prefer Battlefield's sh*tty Refracter 2 engine over the Half Life 2 engine? And Valve is releasing the SDKs to the mod teams a MONTH before the release of HL2. And where's BF's SDK EA? Half Life 2 will be the new generation of gaming. Our kids and grandkids will grow up with it and treat it as Nintendo. Ok maybe I got too into the moment there but you get the idea :deal:
I take it half life 2 will have tanks and planes?
Of course I'll buy HL2, when's it coming out anyway. I've got some spare cash on my hands...
It doesn't have tanks and planes perse but it does have flying physics so the modding teams can make tanks and planes as easy as 1 2 3.
It's scheduled to come out September 30, 2003.
I saw a video of half-life 2 and god it looks great ! It is the best game I ever saw ! (well for the graphics) but I think it's gonna take a 2.5 Ghz, 512 MB ram, ATI 9800 Pro, 2 GB HD and an Audigy SB Platinum :fistpunch:
yeah not to mention the size it will be... my guess.... 5 gig?

Ya ive spent around 3000$ in the past few months on this beast and ill still need a new mother board and i would suspect 9700 or 9800 just to play the new generation of games. mind you i have no problem playing the games that are out there now. oh well ill wait and see .
That e3 movie looked sweet but yeah,looks like a system killer for sure.Graphics can be dialed down easy enough,but I think that awesome physics engine is going to take some serious proccesser power.
I am prepared and awaiting battle on this fine game.. Bring it on!
I need a new computer anyway, might as well go all out :naughty:
